Winemaker's Notes:

Number 12 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!

Color: Pale straw with touches of green.

Aroma: Classic Sauvignon characters of cut grass and tropical fruits are dominant on the nose.

Palate: Unfolds with flavors of passionfruit, gooseberry and subtle herbaceousness. The wine is mouthfilling with good texture and finishes well with cleansing acidity and great length.

Food Match: Ideally suited to asparagus, oysters and summer salads.

Cellar: A wine to drink now and, with careful cellaring, will last up to five years.
